Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” What does fear have to do with wisdom? This teaches us that the only true source of wisdom is God. The verse is teaching for us to have love and respect for God. The fear mentioned is different from a fear of things that would hurt us. In Matthew 28:20 Jesus says, “…I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”. So it’s good news that God is with us. We have love for God not because we fear He’s going to torture us if we don’t. Rather, because we recognize who He is and His love for us. 1 John 4:19 says, “We love him, because he first loved us.”. Praise God for His love for us. Amen
